All things Tolkien, the great forests of the world, horses and feeling the richness of my garden soil.
First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
After pleading for the three book collection following my writing to JRR Tolkien about my love of "The Hobbit", I received the set as a Birthday Present in 1968. I have read it at least once a year ever since.
Favorite Tolkien character:
Treebeard is the ultimate expression of the connection to nature. He is as deep and mysterious as any forest of the world.
